Abstract

The curative effects of traditional Chinese herbs Dangguishaoyaosan, Chaihujialonggumulitang and two herbs (CHP I and CHP II) developed by the authors on improving the memory and cognitive function of AD mouse models were studied by the detection of behavioral and histochemical tests, with piracetam serving as control.

RESULT:

CHP II has profound curative effects on improving the memory and cognitive function of AD-like animal model.
